I presume this is those who’re unavailable; 

Rudden, Mayo, Stone (Int. Duty)

McKenna, Brownlie, Bell (Injury) 

Hastie (Cup-tied) 

 

I think another defender is definitely needed for cover at least, but the loan window is still open (too late for tomorrow’s match however). 

Your list is correct.

The injury news is not good. "Steven Bell will miss out too and Ciaran McKenna is still a bit away from being in contention for a matchday squad". The comment on Bell is vague - nothing on what the injury is and no indication on how long he'll be missing. 

Presumably, it'll be a choice of Akinola or Gordon at RB when Mayo returns.  I'm assuming that we can't recall Niang before January at the earliest. I'd prefer another specialist RB with Akinola, McKenna or Mayo at CB. So who is available, affordable and good enough?

I was expecting our last defensive signing to be some 18 year old from the OF / Hearts / Hibs so I'm at least pleased it's an experienced player and a proper left back.  

only signing til January seems a bit strange though, initial thought was maybe a fitness issue but he played 40+ times for Morecambe last season.

I would assume that he was holding out for a better deal than we’re offering but it hasn’t materialised yet, so it’s maybe him keeping his options open. If he does well enough for us to get one in January, then fair enough.

Pleased with this signing, hopefully will be decent at this level and it now gives us another option at LB with Holt almost certainly going to remain in central defence. I’d imagine Foster will now head to RB (although there’s a valid argument he’s been better on the left).

Hows he getting on now we're a bit further on?

Still showing promise?

No. He's currently injured after hurting himself in training with Thistle and was last seen limping about with a moon boot.

He might be back in action by October-ish.

It's unlikely that were many other, if any, available LBs with the necessary experience. 

When McKenna and Bell return from injury, there will be competition and cover for each defensive position.

Another striker would help.

Don’t think we need another striker. Realistically, anyone we could get now won’t be better than Graham or Rudden, so would be third/fourth choice. Anyone happy to do that will be shite. Our squad is already relatively large, so f**k knows what wages we’ll still have to offer too. 

We’d likely just change system a bit and play Smith/Turner centrally with Hastie and Tiffoney wide if one of our Rudden or Graham get injured.

Quite. I think most of us were expecting a young inexperienced loanee to come in.

It's still on take a look on the official site for details buddy

Does anyone know if the club is still planning on running an open day event this Sunday? Hasn't been anything on the website since they first announced it?
